I have been working at Medidata Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- college-like environment in the engineering group, great culture and values
- working with very smart, visionary people that don't fear failure and are always looking to make things better, adopt the latest technologies and improve the process
- appreciation and opportunities to grow for talented people
- good work-life balance

Cons

working in a regulated environment can sometimes be frustrating because things are not moving as fast as engineers would like, but there is a genuine effort to automate and optimize the process

Advice to Management

Keep thinking outside of the box.

    I worked at Medidata Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company has provided me the best work experience I have had to date in the corporate world. My engineering colleagues at Medidata are brilliant and knowledgeable, but more importantly, they are also highly collaborative, eager to share information, and enjoyable to be around. There are plenty of opportunities for advancement. You'll work hard, but you'll also be recognized for doing so.

    Cons

    Not many negatives -- I feel I can recommend working at Medidata to friends and colleagues without reservation. The company could do a bit more outreach to recruit female engineers, IMHO. I believe HR is taking steps in that direction.

    Advice to Management

    Management has a few shining stars -- extremely competent in engineering and also great at working with and motivating people (I was lucky to work directly with one of them before he was promoted to higher position). Senior management should look to those few folks for direction and as templates for hiring other line managers.

    Pros

    Salary, opportunity for growth, location, people!

    Cons

    The company has a start-up tech vibe that is slowly moving into more of a corporate organization. Don't lose the vibe.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management is laser focused on continuing to grow the company and making it the the best place to work in life sciences. Keep up the good work!
